  • PA PODIATRIST STATES THAT OVERPRESCRIBING CAN LEAD TO ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IN DIABETIC PATIENTS

DIABETIC INFECTIONS ARE AN INCREASING COMMON PROBLEM, BUT PROPER CARE CAN SAVE LIMBS AND ULTIMATELY LIVES, SUGGESTS NEW GUIDLINES RELEASED BY THE INFECTIOUS DISEASES SOCIETY OF AMERICA (IDSA).

"THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF OVER-PRESCRIBING OR INAPPROPRIATE PRESCRIBING OF ANTIBIOTICS FOR DIABETIC FOOT WOUNDS, WHICH DOESN'T HELP THE PATIENT AND CAN LEAD TO ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE," SAYS DOCTOR WARREN JOSEPH, PODIATRIST AND CO-AUTHOR OF THE GUIDLINES AND CONSULTANTS FOR LOWER EXTREMITY INFECTIOUS DISEASES AT ROXBOROUGH MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, PHILADELPHIA.  "THE GUIDLINES NOTE THAT WHEN ANTIBIOTICS ARE NECESSARY, THEY SHOULD BE DISCONTINUED WHEN THE INFECTION IS GONE, EVEN IF THE WOUND HASN'T HEALED COMPLETELY," SAYS PODIATRIST JOSEPH.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS, CHIROPRACTORS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT IS IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE YOU CONSULT A FOOT SPECIALIST IF YOU HAVE ANY SIGNS OF INFECTION IN YOUR FOOT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE DIABETIC.
